It’s every customer’s choice whether to offer or withhold business. After all the customer is always right. Manchester United is no different and for those fans not willing to line the Glazer family’s pockets any more than they have to there is an alternative shirt or few. From the MUST edition and classic originals, to black market fakes….
MUST One Love Shirt – all profits to charity – £19.99
Star Sport 4 U – top quality fakes direct from Thailand – £8 plus shipping
Soccer Triads – more fake shirts from China – £17 plus shipping
United themed Ts from TShirtsUnited – various prices
Green & Gold shirts – not original but good quality from TOFFS – £36.99
1999 Final – Replica of the Champions League winning shirt! – £30 inc. shipping
Classic United shirts – genuine, expensive but worth it – from £49.99 to £499.99
Of course fans could hand over £49.99 to the Glazer family for the official replica shirt instead. It is after all their money that they’ll be throwing into the family’s black hole of speculative leveraged debt.

I would also add to that list – The embroidered badge shirts from Red News. Great shirts that celebrate three european cup wins – The three stars on the shirt actually have significance unlike the berties effort. I think they go for about 18pounds or so and there were a good handful in evidence in toronto on Friday night.
And here’s the link
Mate now your just being stupid, every1 should get the new utd shirt and wear it proudly, support the team and Sir Alex by sporting the colors of utd with pride. You really got cut it out, yea the Glazer fam owns us but the cash goes to the club itself, sure they take some out 4 the debt but what you expect, its their only option till they get somethink together to pay it off completely. Advise ppl buy elsewhere is wrong, no1 should advise others 2help increase worries, we are manchester and 2g4 we stand.
If you want to help fund the Glazers that’s fine – your money will go to fund them, not the team. The notion that spending money on United is somehow helping the club is naive. But please don’t tell me what I can or cannot say on this site.
Funny that your IP address is exactly the same as “AJ” whose been round all the sites saying the same thing. Hmmm.
The money will fund the club and the Glazers. No United WANTS to help the Glazers but no United fan should do anything that removes revenue from the club itself whether it hurts the Glazers or not. I would support any move to remove them and replace them with a much more stable option. Till then, you have your methods of protest and we have ours.
“No United fan wants….” *
You are aware those people (m.u.s.t) were in favor of another leverage take over with those skintknights who broke every promise they made b4 it was revealed not only couldnt they afford the club, but they not the money to run it and wanted keep the debt around, knights only want get their hands into utds pockets, skintknights are just an english version of glazers and publicity hunters backed them, embarrassing. We should look for some rich billionaire from the eastern world; Manchester is Red.
Well I don’t speak for any of those people you mention but helps if you get some facts straight because you’re quite wrong. Not the first time I might add AJ, AS or whatever you’re calling yourself today.
Firstly, no bid was made so you’re basing that diatribe on nothing but your own misguided assumptions or newspaper talk. Second, as I understand no leverage was included in any potential bid. Retaining the bond – as would almost certainly happen – would have been an economic reality as redemption costs 121% but that’s not “leverage”. Billionaires “from the eastern world” will do the same. Do some research, it helps.
“…sure they take some out 4 the debt but what you expect, its their only option till they get somethink together to pay it off completely…”
Your naivety would be touching is it wasn’t so far off the mark. The Glazers work WITH debt — they don’t need to pay it off as long as other people like you keep lending them more. Look at Glazer’s house ans see what you’re knocking yourself out working for. Get real FFS.
Lol my name anthony sven, if you look mate at his email it would be andrew jon, twins but very different ego’s lol, i dont back glazers and i dont have problem with what you publish, i just like voice my say, i want glazerz out but not in a way that hurts the team i love, i long for breaking news that a rich billionaire buys us but i want it done by choice not force, i never do anything to hurt my team, We are Manchester.
You want the truth AS, AJ, Anthony, John or whatever … you’re not going to like it. United is hurting right now. Lots. And its going to get worse. But short term pain to rid the club of the Glazer leaches is absolutely worth it.
Be careful about thinking that a billionaire will come and solve our problems if the debt keeps increasing. Liverpool is not having an easy time in attracting buyers.
They won’t is the answer. Not while the Glazers attach £300m ‘goodwill’ to the club’s price and £500m bond debt.
If we’re hurting then it aint having an impact on the field, in last 5yrz we been lge©s 3x’s, r’up twice, 2 ©lge finals would of 3 if not 4 ref, 3 cc finals, an fa cup final, we’re contesting the c.shield and club world cup and have spent £174m on players (£167m have come in from player sales, omg lol) we have remained the elite force…..dont fault me for not wanting be part of this war, i want again make clear i hadnt an issue with your articles, there just times i disagree, its how i am.
Wouldn’t surprise me if all the interns at MUFC are being instructed to go all over the web and try and convince people the Glazers aren’t really killing our club. I havent spent one dollar or pound on anything that could help the glazers, and i will proudly wear the shirt of United, just not one that will help the Glazers. (Ed, thanks for that ip address call-out, it just confirms what many of us already suspected)
Really Red Devil, i don’t care who afraid to accept that there are millions upon millions of loyal utd fans who dont back any protest, i do however take serious offfence to anyone trying claim am some one else, unlike some i know A.j cause we’re brothers- you do know there such a thing right, I take offence being compared to him cause he’s an over-bearing twat with a surreal ego-problem. Me Im completely different, more controversial but friendlier, takes a shallow person accuse us of being 1 when we r 2.
The reason why we saw the success on-field for the past few years was due mainly to players bought before the Glazer takeover .The success was because of SAF and his coaching staff, not because of the Glazers.
In fact as I noted in an earlier piece 2002 – 2004 was a very heavy period of spending. Nothing to do with the gimps at all.
I’ve ordered the MUST – One Love shirt.
Speaking of upper body attire… I love this picture. Berbatov, the genius; the enigma, seems to be exempt from wearing what everyone else is!
Maybe letting him do what he wants is Sir Alex’s way of building his confidence??
ED …Very good note of yours at 1:14 a.m..Reading around the different blogs, I see some people are claiming those fans who dont buy tickets,merchandise etc are damaging the club.At the same time, they claim that the Man Utd “brand” would easily be sold to a Chinese or Arab billionaire (even with all of the debt) and so we shouldnt concern ourselves thinking about the debt issue..Perhaps our lack of transfer spending might wake a few ppl up..I might add that Ive supported the club since the mid-70s and yes, I remember those “you will never win the league days”. .Also ,I respect the different opinions of others even if I dont agree with them…
great post Ed.
lets stop lining these morons pockets.
and i can confirm that the fakes are truly excellent replica’s
My understanding is that united already have the sponsorship money from Nike for the shirt deal and that the vast majority of the money raised in shirt sales goes directly to them, not the club. Don’t get me wrong, tthe club will sttill make a small profit on all merchandise sold, but the horse has bolted on this one.
Your “understanding” – very tabloid speak – is correct. £313 million deal with Nike was sold some time ago so only a percentage of sales goes directly to United. This is not atypical in the football market, although United’s deal is considerably larger than most clubs. It’s not just about cash on this one though, it’s also about not buying a shirt that represents the Glazers and their corporate sponsors.
And the competition on RoM.
The number of shirts sold, will, however, be a bargaining chip at the next round of negotiations.
What’s the deal with this shirt on soccer triads?
It’s the Newton Health colours but with all the rest of the modern logo’s and stuff. Aware that this is a site which sells fakes though is this Untied’s third skip this season? And if so are the club trying to undercut the green and gold protests by having a green and gold top again?
Weird… I don’t know the answer but I’ll find out. The official third and away kits haven’t been launched yet, although plenty of pictures of the away kit are available on the internet.
Will stick this on Twitter and see what people say….
ed,ed,ed,throwing away the baby with the bath water,pathetic.
Some great looking shirts on those sites.
The pre ’99 kits are the best imo.
